John Sonmez: Take Action and Shape Your Reality
So many developers and people of all sorts wait for good things to happen to them. Days, weeks, years, and decades can pass on the well-trod path of school, job, retirement accounts, and growing old. Following this script can lead to the sudden realization that life has passed you by and you have not achieved what you really want and have not engaged in the activities that truly light you up. It's not the only way, though. Life is filled with uncertainty and there are no guarantees, but John Sonmez is living his advice and taking chances with his career and his life. The positive results have been beyond belief. Inspired by the wisdom of Tony Robbins in saying "the quality of your life is in direct proportion to the amount of uncertainty you can comfortably live with," John has learned to face fear rather than retreat and to take action. To move forward and maximize your experience in your life and your work, you must leave comfort behind and simply do. It is in this way that you can shape your reality into what you choose.
